This week I will share a poem I wrote about my struggle with religion.
I still encourage you guys to send in your poems to enter Poetic Friday because I have almost run out.
Also, leave a comment below about your thoughts on the poem and if you ever questioned religion.

Or at least the purpose of it.
Why am I here please give me some assistance.
I am not blind to the murders you commit.
I am not blind to the pain that you cause.
I am not blind to the blood on your hands.
I am not blind to your contradictable laws.
I am not blind to your lies about the man.
I am not blind to the hatred in your heart
I am not blind to your judgement of my flaws.
I am not blind and I knew it from the start.
I am not blind although I wish I was.
I won’t be your puppet on a string.
I won’t fill any more of your needs.
I won’t allow the chaos that you bring.
I won’t let you starve the people you were supposed to feed.
I won’t let you misguide me anymore.
I won’t walk towards your light.
I won’t enter your gates, I prefer the door.
I won’t let you have my soul without a fight.
Leave me be from your continued preachings.
Leave me be to live on my own.
Leave me be I don’t want your teachings.
Leave me be my life is mine alone.
Leave me be and don’t you dare return
Leave me be ’cause you’re not the father I need.
Leave me be I don’t want your concern.
Leave me be I don’t need you to lead
I am done seeking your help.
I am done pleasing your ego.
I am done and can take care of myself.
I am done following your people.
I am done with all your teachings
I am done with all your lies.
I am done and I won’t be reaching.
I am done because you are an imaginary man in the sky.
